I am making great progress on "Project Clean Studio!" I have managed to pull EVERYTHING out of my studio and the guest bedroom (where my What You Make It - kit inventory is kept) and have sorted it into three piles:
Keep (only my very favorites, tools I use regularly, new things to share with you this fall).
Share/Sell (Lots of yummy things here...some of you have already been sent boxes via RAKs and Goody boxes that you have purchased)
Toss: These items either went in the trash or a box to take to Good Will or our Community Center.
I got braver the longer I worked on it...kind of like that tv show "Clean Sweep" - my "sell and toss" piles got larger and larger. I finally realized that I want to only have those things that inspire me - or I intend to use available in my newly organized studio and office...and that it would be great to let others enjoy the items that didn't make the keep pile. So, I hope to be able to do a video soon of my reorganized space...I am keeping that as incentive to keep working on it a bit day by day.
I am having a Scrappy Yard Sale on Saturday....with lots of themed collections, embellishment collections, stamps, ribbon/trim samplers and tools. If you live near Nashville, you ought to come out and find some goodies for yourself. We will be starting at 7am - Adams Auto is located at 15115 Lebanon Rd, Old Hickory TN 37138.
I still have a few Grab Boxes available too...filled to the brim with papers, trims, embellies and mini album base boards ($50). If you want one, please let me know before Saturday (give me your email address so I can send you a PayPal invoice) as I will be taking them to the Garage Sale to sell as well.
I am going to be so glad when this project is over and I can get back to my "regularly scheduled" creativity. Ahh - but most good things require work...so I will be back at it tonight. I also want to say a HUGE "thank you" to all of you who have written me notes of encouragement - and left me ideas to keep me motivated during this process. I have tried just about ALL of them! And will certainly be using several of them AGAIN as I push towards the finish. I will be announcing the winner of the give away later this week...so check back!
What is that ONE project that you keep putting off?
